Palkia looks dinosaur-like, similar to {{P|Dialga}}, though it seems to be based on a theropod, the bipedal carnivorous dinosaurs. Palkia’s body is mainly a shade of light purple, although it has stripes and markings of a darker shade and a grayish-colored arm underside and waist. It has round purple-striped plates on its shoulder area, where two pink pearls lie encrusted with a gray rim encircling them and fins in their back. Palkia’s arms have somewhat gauntlet-like extended formations and a purple band of coloration at the wrist. Palkia has a long neck, a pointed white crest on the top of its head that extends to its wings, two strong horn-like tusks on the sides of its jaw, and a powerful tail.
====Gender differences====
Palkia is a genderless species. It is referred to as a male in [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness]].
 
====Special abilities====
Palkia has the ability to warp space. An example of this was shown in {{g|Ranger: Shadows of Almia}}, in which Palkia was able to shuffle the landscape of [[Almia]] around at a whim, allowing doors to connect to places miles away and for large forests to fit inside tiny houses. In {{game3|Diamond and Pearl|Pokémon Pearl Version|s}}, it is mentioned on the statue in [[Eterna City]] that it can create alternate realities.
* Palkia, like {{p|Blastoise}}, {{p|Ho-Oh}} (as of the release of {{v|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}), and {{p|Dialga}}, shares the first letter of its name with the game it is the mascot of: {{game|Diamond and Pearl|s|Pearl}}.
* Palkia is the only member of the [[creation trio]] that does not have a unique type combination.
* Palkia is the only member of the [[Creation trio]] not to have an immunity (Dialga is immune to poison, and Giratina is immune to Normal and Fighting).
* Despite being primarily a Water-type Pokémon, it only learns three Water-type moves through level up.
* The gems on Palkia's shoulders resemble Pale [[Sphere]]s.
* Palkia, along with Dialga and {{p|Phione}}, has the second highest [[catch rate]] after {{p|Mew}}, {{p|Celebi}} and {{p|Shaymin}} out of all the legendary Pokémon, with a catch rate of 30.
* Palkia and {{p|Dialga}} are the first legendary Pokémon to be met at a level that is not divisible by 5, appearing at Level 47.
* Although Palkia is genderless in the mainhighest games,[[IQ]] itgroup. and is referredthe toonly as a malePokémon in [[PokémonIQ Mysterygroup Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness]]J.
* Palkia is in the highest [[IQ]] group. It takes this position in IQ group J and is the only Pokémon in IQ group J.
* In [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness]], Palkia, along with [[Primal Dialga]], the [[legendary golems]], the {{p|Magnemite}} family, and {{p|Regigigas}}, all speak in capital letters, unlike the other Pokémon in the game.
* Oddly, Palkia learns {{m|Aqua Tail}} two times: at level 24 and again at level 42.
* Palkia is the only member of the [[Creation trio]] not to have an immunity (Dialga is immune to poison, and Giratina is immune to Normal and Fighting).
